Android L. That’s the name of the next major release for Android that Google has planned. Announced and revealed at Google I/O, Google also released an early preview version of the OS intended for App developers to test and ready their apps. However, the preview version was only released for 2 devices – Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013. Nexus 4 owners were understandably unhappy at being left behind.
However, all was not lost as the developer community came to the rescue and ported the developer preview version to the Nexus 4. The ported version is, in some cases, an improvement over the original developer preview version that was released. Developers worked relentlessly to fix issues and add features as the ported ROM matured.
